T'other thread was getting full and there's shinies and stuff!

GavelRavel Thu 23-Mar-17 09:38:05

Is there? I've been busy last couple weeks and not been keeping up, could i have an update please?smile

AbbeyRoadCrossing Thu 23-Mar-17 09:42:55

Thanks for the new thread.
Do the shiny ones do anything or are they just decoratively shiny?

IamRonnieBiggs Thu 23-Mar-17 09:44:03

I want something shiney!

Igneococcus Thu 23-Mar-17 10:13:07

Caught 2 magikarps in the last 30 min, none of them shiny. I need the candy though if I want to evolve a red gyrados. I've been ignoring them for many months.

PickAChew Thu 23-Mar-17 11:11:23

Shinies are incredibly rare, apparently. Info here:

Debating whether or not to tell dd1 about shiny Pokémon - not sure I want to spend the next week chasing magikarp!

spiderlight Thu 23-Mar-17 11:48:46

Just caught an Octillery without leaving my desk smile DS will be pleased!

Are the shinies just for the event?

Igneococcus Thu 23-Mar-17 11:55:58

Can you tell if it is a shiny on the radar or does it display as a normal magikarp? I see magikarps all the time, but I can't dash out for every single sighting of them, just on the off chance.

Done an 8 mile riverside walk today. Caught 30 magikarp, no shiney ones at all.

MuddlingMackem Thu 23-Mar-17 12:49:20

No shiney Magikarp here, although I have caught a few regular ones. Given the frequency, and that fact that I haven't seen a single one today, I think they're replacing Swinub.

GalenJustGalen Thu 23-Mar-17 13:05:29

Ooooooh shiny! (easily distracted)

Strigoi Thu 23-Mar-17 13:11:17

Checking in!

BumWad Thu 23-Mar-17 13:26:54

I like my new Magikarp hat although I keep thinking there are Magikarp nearby when it's actually my hat!

AbbeyRoadCrossing Thu 23-Mar-17 13:54:32

I've been doing that too Bumwad! I'm desperate to get my first Gyrados still 150 or so to go....

Does anyone use battery packs? Any recommendations? My phone battery never lasts a long poke walk

spiderlight Thu 23-Mar-17 14:02:25

I have this battery pack, which is great -- gives me about two full charges. DS has just been given this one for his birthday, which is gorgeous and has sockets to charge two phones at a time, but we've not had a chance to use it yet.

PossumInAPearTree Thu 23-Mar-17 14:23:12

Yes, I also keep thinking there's a magikarp close by and it's my hat!

FreeNiki Thu 23-Mar-17 14:37:45

I have 450 Magikarp candies and decided not to evolve last session with lucky egg. Now will hold out for a shiny one.

Have seen 2 omanytes as part of the event. Love my hat but look at that menacing sod following me.

TinfoilHattie Thu 23-Mar-17 14:53:14

Also remember to use one of the yellow berries when catching Magikarps as it increases the number of candies. Every little helps.

I am ONE poliwag away from a Politoed...

AbbeyRoadCrossing Thu 23-Mar-17 14:57:16

That pokeball one looks awesome spiderlight

I've got enough candy for a Slowking I just need the king's rock.

spiderlight Thu 23-Mar-17 14:57:50

Doing well so far today - Octillery, Mantine and two Remoraids, all without leaving the house. Perks of living by a river! grin

PickAChew Thu 23-Mar-17 14:59:34

Ds1 and I each have the 10,000mAH anker battery pack. Perfect for a day out hunting.

FreeNiki Thu 23-Mar-17 15:08:44

I only had one Scyther and I was walking it anyway but just hatched another from a 5k egg!

Now only need 10 candies to evolve and I have a metal coat already waiting!

EatingMyWords Thu 23-Mar-17 18:16:48

I've got hardly any pokeballs and there's an event- eek! Oh well, got to go to town tomorrow so I can stock up then.

I've been mostly hatching eggs as I've taken on an allotment a couple of miles away, so I'm getting a lot of walking in! Hatched a gligar today which is a bit rubbish, but I've got 3 more 10k eggs- the most I've had at one go.
